Asinate's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy building materials as well as ingredients, cooking equipment/utensils and packaging for a food selling business.

Asinate's story

One cannot help but feel compassion at the sight of Asinate’s house, which has been reduced to mere beams that once held together a home where family and friends lived and laughed.

Tropical Cyclone Yasa left few structures standing as it swept through Asinate’s village. Many were left with nothing but the clothes on their backs, while others watched as a lifetime of work was taken away in a day.

Asinate and her family have been sheltered in an evacuation center since then and the grandmother of four has explored her options so her home is rebuilt and her food pack business is revived.

She needs a loan to buy building materials and the ingredients, cooking utensils/equipment and takeaway containers to continue her home-based business of selling food packs.

Asinate is strong enough to move on and wise enough to wait for what she deserves, and she hopes lenders will place their confidence in her capabilities.
